Head of School’s Comment

John Colet School - Belrose, Sydney

Our Value in focus this Term is Truthfulness. In the first half of this Term, both as staff and students, we have worked to ensure that we speak the whole truth and when we do, it is for the benefit of all. In the coming weeks we shall be exploring why it is important to seek the truth, not necessarily to find it, but the journey itself. This is the definition of philosophy, from the Greek φιλοσοφία, philosophia, ‘love of wisdom’. It is also the basis of modern scientific theory, always open, never closed. A never-ending road trip; are we there yet?
